Bypassing is an effect that allows the Runner to immediately pass a piece of ice during a run without finishing the encounter.

Page 2, Column 2, Paragraph(s) 3, FAQ
When an effect allows the Runner to "bypass" a piece of ice, he immediately passes that ice and continues the run. All subroutines (including 0) on the ice bypassed are not broken.

When a piece of ice is bypassed, any "when encountered" abilities that were triggered are prevented from resolving.
